Description

On the front walls facing 3rd St. there are two mayor female characters. The woman on the left side is wearing a regional costume and is playing a musical instrument (saxophone) the background contains the same regional flowers as her dress. The women on the right side is also wearing a regional costume, holding a pineapple on her shoulder with one hand and a heart on the other hand, from within the heart comes a couple of maple leaves. At the bottom there are embroided textiles embracing her legs. The wall facing the alley contains the continuation of the textiles, the maple leave and a Mariachi musician playing the guitar. These characters belong to a region called Oaxaca located in Southwestern Mexico, this state is best know for its indigenous people and culture. The mural is portraying the importance that celebrations with music, dance and costumes, hold into the community. Mexico's rich culture derives from the mingling of the ancient traditions of its vibrant indigenous people with Spanish colonial customs. Here in Vancouver, Canada, we can relate to this sharing and giving of multiculturalism. Here, where each culture gives a sense of identity to the city and where each group adds its distinctive touch to the celebrations and fiesta. This mural is generously supported by La Casa Productions
